(vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? john: it's time for our thing of the day. today's it's our congressional derangement of the day. congressman michele bachmann's presidential campaign of 2012 is under investigation by the office of congressional ethics for campaign finance violations. it remains to be seen if this investigation will distract her from the pretend make believe fantasy investigations into obamacare killing people and obama's five air force one chefs and $200 million a day for the president to visit india and the obama dog walker going on inside her own head. since this investigation is taking place on the planet earth, we're not shove congressman bachmann is going to hear about it. >> for the first time, the democratically controlled senate passed a federal budget doctor president obama's tenure. it has no chance of passing the gop house. it was passed at 5:00 a.m. saturday morning by 50-49. four democrats v
. >> sean: what's karl rove behind this. >> he was behind romney and didn't win the presidency and the last two years, you were talking about romney winning and guess what? he lost and mcconnell is going to lose, too. >> sean: how much you want to bet. >> they polled mcconnell's poll issues, one of the problems he's not conservative enough. that's the problem in kentucky if he was-- >> and you got back from colorado again. >> right, i must not be the one smoking pot because bill clinton won twice in kentucky. >> that's why he doesn't want her to be the candidate. >> he want another democrat. >> not mcconnell. >> someone electable. >> sean: he doesn't want ashley judd-- >> people are conservative and-- >> yeah, he doesn't want ashley to run because he knows she's going to lose. >> too far left. >> no, because his best friend's daughter is secretary of state. >> sean: wrong. >> let me educate you, sean, his-- >> of before the segment i say this to other occasionally and makes her bubble like alka-seltzer in water and she steals my line. you've got to make up your line. >> and bill clinton's d
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h
would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: senator dianne feinstein says harry reid broke his word. nothing. nothing, nothing worse than the united states congress than for a member of congress to break his or her word. there are strong words coming from the senior senator from california. good morning, everybody. hello. hello. hello. it is great to see you today. it is thursday march 21st. this is the "full court press," welcome to the program this morning, and thank you for being a part of the program. you are a part of the program every morning. it's not just us talking to you, it's not just us telling you what is going on. we have a conversation here. we'll let you know what is happening, and you tell us what it all means to you. 866-55-press is our toll free number, that's how you wa
to address its problems of getting its message across. this new thinking started after mitt romney's loss to president obama in the november election. so what is the grand plan? mark preston joining us. mark, do you know? they say they don't want to have an image of stuffy old men, is that it? >> that is it. let the recalibration begin, suzanne. you know, you and i have heard this time and time again after every presidential election you hear the losing political party talk about how they need to change their message. but reince priebus, who is the chairman of the republican national committee, suzanne, says that he has really got to recalibrate what they're doing. he spent the last several months right now putting together a proposal that would not only overhaul the mechanics of how republicans pick their presidential nominee, but would also overhaul the message. he's talking about spending $10 million and dedicating that money to put people on the ground, paid workers in the communities such as african-american communities, hispanic communities, to try to recruit voters. they got clobbe
season moments likes this.here's romney at the naacp. >> i'm going to eliminate every non essential expensive program i can find that includes obama care (crowd boos) >> reporter: also on the table:remember all those republican debates? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes sir. >> or are you going to let me finish what i have to say >> reporter: the plan is to: -limit them. shorten the primary calendar. and move up the party's convention date some republicans say this report is an acknowledgement of issues. >> it's a start. is it the magic formula, the silver bullet to start winning elections? no. the bottom line: modernize the message. >> catherine: more bay area news -- coming this august bay area commuters will have another option to get around. a regional bike-sharing system. the bay area air quality management district is rolling out a seven- million dollar pilot program linking san francisco to san jose. people can will be able to buy passes which provide access to 700 bikes at 70 kiosks near bus and train stations. there's no word yet on pricing. >> the strike by san fr
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
. that this is not going to be something we sideline or in the words of mitt romney kicked down the road. >> yeah, that was epic huh? >> hal: holy -- if you want -- let's talk about for a second the perception of the republican party's relationship with israel, and the reality of the democrat's position in their relationship with israel. because republicans ran a guy who did two amazing things during the last campaign. he said openly that's something where you really -- it's never going to be solved and you basically just kick the can down the road and make it the next guy's problem. >> which is an unbelievable thing for a presidential candidate to say about an issue that large. >> hal: especially when you leave a few weeks later to go there to campaign for money. >> and bring donors with you. >> hal: right. and in your sensitivity have your fund raiser on a holiday. remember that? >> yeah. >> hal: they scheduled it on a holiday -- and they were like well -- we'll do it quietly, like we won't serve wine or something. and it's like dude that's not the point! >> no. >> hal: so
of them from conservative states that voted for rick -- mitt romney. also, trying to stop the keystone pipeline, an amendment on carbon taxes and some amendments that republicans got done. things that dealt with climate change and other environmental issues. host: let's move on to the issue we brought you here, the house and senate this week approved legislation to keep the government funded through september, avoiding a shutdown by keeping in place the sequester. explain to us how the government funding will work under this bill. guest: the cr that was passed that heads to the president's desk, they are able to continue funding government passed march 27. it was a fine line they had to walk. republicans were not going to sign off on something but at the same time there were a number who were trying to get pieces of the sequester reinstated. as a result, he put together a , both that compromised sides working together. it leaves in place a lot of the other cuts, air traffic control towers are still going to see problems. other places where there could be furloughs, things like me inspe
, all the way back to lincoln, but today it seems to you have people -- mitt romney day 1 said that he would try to reverse it. in the history of the republican party the republicans have come up with great ideas and new things and people today want to undo that. guest: i appreciate that. what you point out is a fundamental lack of understanding of our own history relative to the things that we as trash or criticize fundamentally being oriented out of the philosophy of the party at that time. the referenced david bacon, talking about the emancipation proclamation, a radical departure from where the country was a the time. you talked about one of my favorites, affirmative action. a lot of republicans will trash that program in a heartbeat not recognizing that it was republicans who created affirmative action. richard nixon during his administration brought together african-american leaders within his administration to put in place a leveling field because he saw that black contractors were not getting a fair deal on federal contract in with their white counterparts. he wanted to create
candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle
these debates were destructive to the eventual nominee, mitt romney. they wanted to reform that. >> i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates, candidates slicing and dicing each other. i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. >> and there you have it. reince preibus talking about moving up their convention. he's talking about doing that now at the beginning of the summer. it will greatly alter what we're used to in seeing how a presidential campaign operates. >> will front-load the whole process, giving us a few months of intense, intense campaigning. nice to see you this morning. thanks for coming in. >>> later on "starting point" we'll talk about the republican blueprint with ari fleischer. also cnn's jake tapper, whoegs new show "the lead" launches this afternoon at 4:00 eastern time on cnn. he'll be on the show at 8:00 talking about the republican plan. >>> listen up. calling all bracketologists, the field for ncaa men's field is set and the team that won it all a year ago is not even
to revenue. again, we heard from governor romney and others last year that there are about $4 trillion in these disers to -- distortions and preferences in the tax code that help very wealthy people. and what we say is we should get out some of that clutter, some of those preferences and use some of that to help reduce the deficit. and we say at the same time when u do tax reform, don't touch middle-income taxpayers and when we asked our republican colleagues to give us that assurance in the form of an amendment in the budget committee, they all voted no. so, yes, we think that you can eliminate some of the tax breaks and preferences that mr. mcclintock just talked about, but you can use some of them to reduce the deficit. but the republican budget won't use one dime of those to help reduce the deficit. i now yield two minutes to the gentleman from washington state who is both on the budget committee and on the ways and means committee, mr. mcdermott. the chair: the gentleman from washington is recognized for two minutes. without objection, so ordered. mr. mcdermott: mr. chairman, i as
the romney campaign and has been there since 2005. he also covered the obama transition. wasalked about what happening in colorado and what was signed into law there. the governor and other western democrats -- how important are they in terms of leading the charge to change the conversation about the gun control debate? guest: they are very important. western democrats have been some of the biggest defenders on gun rights that have not engaged a conversation on gun control measures. the fact that they are talking about it, and the governor of colorado has signed into law these measures is critical. it is not solely driven by people like joe biden and bloomberg and the northeastern establishment. they are trying to get geographical diversity. that is why joe manchin is a player. thelso explains why democrats in the senate have gone after tom coburn, a republican from oklahoma, who has been most open to a background check bill and he has been negotiating with chuck schumer from new york. it is not clear if he will actually end up supporting what comes to the floor from senator reed in a couple
